Cybersecurity for At-Home Workers
Teleworkers commonly run their own computers and work in a physically unsecured area. This increases their exposure to cyber attacks and requires careful use of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the enforcement of policies that adhere to leading practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified data security experts can assist you to design, implement and administer a compliant cybersecurity environment that guards vital data in networks that include remote workers.
- Firewalls enable you to create a network environment that can be securely utilized by on-premises users and by telecommuters, mobile employees, vendors, customers, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall devices permit you to assign and control different permissions to different groups of users and to expand your IT network and adjust your security profile as your company evolves and as cyber threats become more sophisticated. Progent supports both new and legacy firewall appliances from all major manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

- Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to track the disparate computers used by an at-home workforce and either block or spot and mitigate the latest cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint software agent is installed on each protected endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning and full execution context to identify zero-day attacks before they can spread. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight ASM instantly disconnects the infected device from the network to quarantine the malware. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is self-contained, endpoints stay protected even when they are offline.

- Security Audits can assess the exposure of your network to all types of external and internal security attacks for an environment that includes remote workers. Progent can run remote, automated cybersecurity analysis scanning for rapidly and affordably detecting a broad range of security holes that can be found over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment experts, which can be provided by security experts with top certifications such as CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist your company to audit your procedures and governance policies and review your IT infrastructure to enable you to implement the highest level of security for your remote workers.
